When our former editor, Scarlotte, announced her departure, the writers wanted to spend one more afternoon around the table enjoying her company and friendship.  So we gathered in the garden for a fun summer luncheon.

As our guests arrived, we served a signature cocktail, Pomegranate Patio Punch along with an appetizer of pear & goat cheese topped crackers garnished with local honey & thyme. Our main menu included a Peach & Tomato salad with a citrus dressing, Creamy Parmesan Risotto with Asparagus, and for dessert we choose from Lemon Bars & Lemon Crumb Bars.

It was a beautiful afternoon filled with love and laughter as we wished Scarlotte the best in her future ventures.
